Ottawa, 12 December 2002

Friends of Banff National Park Fellowship
Banff, Alberta

Application 2002-0408-2
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2002-47
16 August 2002

CFPE-FM - Licence amendment


The Commission approves the application by Friends of Banff National Park Fellowship to amend the licence of the low-power radio station CFPE-FM in order to replace the condition of licence describing the nature of service.


The current condition of licence requires the licensee to "broadcast programming consisting exclusively of general information and weather reports provided by Banff National Park".


The Commission deletes the current condition of licence and replaces it with the following conditions of licence:
  • broadcast programming consisting exclusively of general information related to the ecology, topography, history and culture of mountain regions and the promotion and preservation of the National Park system, including weather reports provided by Banff National Park;
  • broadcast a maximum of 16% musical selections, in a broadcast week, and devote 75% or more of all of its musical selections to selections from category 3 (special interest); and
  • devote 40% or more of its musical selections to Canadian selections in a broadcast week.


The applicant indicated that the purpose of the amendment is to take advantage of the multiple sources of information available to the station through various partner organizations for the benefit of the local community and visitors to Banff National Park.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
